much is made of the electrical sets in this run not living up to acoustics, but I tell you what:
I'd buy the box set - you listening Dave? All three venues, all the shows. 92/24 digital files...

My rainy day random selection - WOW
I don't know what to write except thank you for sharing this magical show! This is one of my favorite shows right now. There is so much love in the first set it spills over into today-I miss you Jerry.
They shake the warm and fuzzies and hold a raunchy psychedelic groove right around El Paso. Third set is FIRE from start to finish!!!
Great sound quality!

This recording is why we love AUDs!! Thanks to Joanie Walker and Paul Scotton. Taping at these Warfield shows had to be covert because of the band recording for the album. This is a high quality recording in any set of conditions. Charlie Miller also is synonomous with quality. Thanks all!!
The acoustic set comes through nicely on this recording. Again, appreciate how tough it is for the band to amplify acoustic music and for the bootleggers to record it -- this is not as easy as it seems.
The band's performance is not without hiccups in the electric set, but by in large, the band is on tonight.

A HIDDEN GEM
This is your lucky day, for you have stumbled upon an amazing portrait of a phenomenal concert. (With the pedigree behind this recording, is there any wonder?) The acoustic set and the performance of HEAVEN HELP THE FOOOL alone makes this recording essential to anyone's collection. If there is a finer recording of this show, PLEASE let us know. Until then, sit back, fire one up, and journey back in time...
Thanks Jonie, Paul & Mr. Charlie!

Keep the Faith
Stage mics (aka soundboards) are great because you clearly hear the intent and interplay of the artist's expression.
Audience mics are different in that you hear the stage mics amplified through the sound system and the acoustic effect of the hall, and the interplay (reaction) of the listener's.
Listen to Jerry's solo in Crazy Cat Sunflower, it almost sounds like the Midi stop flutes mused in 1989 & 1990. Phil fans enjoy the low frequency interaction between the PA and the Hall.
Matrix recordings are tricky in that the phase (timing) errors of combining both stage mics and audience mics in most cases minimizes any benefits.
Then there's the emotional perspective of the audience participant hopped up on all sorts of "crazy emotions" and who know's what the outcome of that individual will be.
Here is a fine example of a good audience recording made on modest equipment at a time when recording shows was a feat within itself.
Yeah i know, it's China Cat.

Hot Hot Hot
I am in love clear audience recordings which strike a balance of play between the GD and those of us who showed up to listen to "Is It Live Or Is It Charlie Miller & Co"?
I get chills listening to the intimacy of this by far best of the current selection available. I am blessed to have run into this new mouthwatering recording. My weekend is complete and it's only Friday!
Your crew and my motha. Thank you. Thank you, very much.

This Is for You, Mom.
This is a fine audience recording ~ who needs SBD's? The only plus about a SBD is that you don't hear audience chatter. There is quite a lot of it on the acoustic set ~ An argument against having acoustic sets, I suppose. Oh, well.
Thank you Joanie.
Thank you Paul.
Thank you Charlie.
And, In honor of Mom, This is the best I could do
Surely am glad you had me so I can be alive to experience all this wonderful music on the Live Music Archives.
